  • Set-up / clean-up
  • Decorating

  • Running a game or craft

How to Sign-up

If you're not one of our already-screened and trained individual volunteers, there are a few ways to sign-up for Event Support volunteering.

  • As a group: a club, family, sports team, etc. Members must be 16+ years of age to work directly with children. A group leader or liaison should fill out this short form to register to sign up for activities (make sure to tick the box on the form that indicates that you are a group leader).
  • Once-off individual volunteers may use the same short form and sign up for an activity that does not directly involve children or other clients. Individuals under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Individuals who want to work with children or clients and/or volunteer on an ongoing basis should contact Maria Busko, volunteercfs@cc-md.org to check about the appropriate application process.
